Man, LeBron James is a damn missile. Look where he takes off for this dunk. He goes through and over Joe Harris like Harris is made of warm air:
The Brooklyn Nets had a real, honest highlight in the third quarter of Monday’s 104-87 win over the Bulls. Nineteen-year-old Jarrett Allen rolled and found himself in the perfect position to throw down a dunk; Bulls rookie Lauri Markkanen found himself in the worst spot to receive it.
By the time the NBA’s All-Star break usually rolls around, the standings are more or less set. It’s typically obvious which four or so teams will be contending for a championship, and it’s also apparent who will be spending the rest of the year in the toilet, tanking for superior lottery odds and draft positioning. As…
We have even more evidence that the league-wide relationship between NBA players and officials is becoming increasingly untenable. There were a total of 21 technicals given out during Monday’s slate of games, and five players were ejected. There were many confounding moments, but perhaps none more so than the…
One of the most intriguing subplots to the NBA season has been finding out about Jahlil Okafor’s taste in movies. Okay, maybe not the most intriguing, or even intriguing at all, but… just stay with me here.
Kristaps Porzingis removed himself from last night’s 111-104 win over the Nets after a non-contact injury to his left knee. He tweaked it once in the first half and then left the game in the third quarter after re-aggravating it on this play.
Probably it is true that Jahlil Okafor won’t ever reclaim the promise that made him the third overall pick in the—holy shit, in the 2015 draft, it feels like it was a thousand years ago. Everyone’s been saying and writing it since then, and it’s truer now than ever: The sport as it is played in the NBA in 2017 tends…
ESPN’s Zach Lowe reports that the Sixers will send Jahlil Okafor, Nik Stauskas, and a second-round pick to the Nets in exchange for Trevor Booker.
NY1 ran a pleasant segment today with 26-year-old Seattle native Joe Harris, a foodie and newcomer to Fort Greene, Brooklyn. It’s a nice place for him to live and work, and no one ever bothers him on the street.
What’s with this Nets fan, who just sits there and lets his beer get blasted to hell by an errant Quincy Acy pass? Hey, look alive, buddy!
Though not nearly as gruesome, the knee injury suffered by Jeremy Lin last night was just as stomach-churning as the leg break that ended Gordon Hayward’s season on Tuesday night. The gut punch didn’t come from any horrifically twisted limb, but from Lin’s anguished reaction.
Jeremy Lin went down with an ugly knee injury in the fourth quarter of tonight’s game against the Indiana Pacers after going up for a contested layup.
Remember when Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov showed up at a team practice and gave his players an unbelievably awkward demonstration of his wall-dribbling drills? As it turns out, those drills were not simply the invention of one man’s wealth-addled mind, but part of a martial art known as Tescao, which Prokhorov…
Here’s Lakers legend and president of basketball operations Magic Johnson, explaining the trade that sent D’Angelo Russell to the Nets and cleared the way for second overall pick Lonzo Ball to supplant him as the team’s point guard of the future:
The second big trade domino has fallen ahead of Thursday’s NBA draft. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Los Angeles Lakers will send point guard D’Angelo Russell and NBA Finals hero Timofey Mozgov to Brooklyn in exchange for Brook Lopez and the 27th pick in the draft.
Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News today dropped an excellent history of the incredibly ill-fated and lopsided 2013 trade that sent Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce from Boston to the Brooklyn Nets, in exchange for a bundle of unprotected draft picks and pick-swaps that wound up including this year’s first overall.
This is the most compelling Brooklyn Nets news of the year.
It’s been five years since Jeremy Lin stumbled out of the D-League and set the basketball world on fire with a few weeks worth of heroics for a moribund New York Knicks team. Rather than fade into obscurity or establish himself as a full-blown star, Lin has just sort of become a normal NBA player. He runs point for…
The old, terrible, hopeless Brooklyn Nets, who are dead last in the entire league with an embarrassing 20-61 record, have announced they will sit six of their players in their last game against the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night, including starters Jeremy Lin and Brook Lopez, as well as bench guy Trevor Booker.…
